Homemade Vanilla Extract!! Wish I would have known this 3 months ago for Christmas Baking! Trying it with Absolut and Whole Foods vanilla beans!
DIY vanilla - Made this for Christmas a few years ago and loved it so much I kept all of it.
Vanilla Extract: 5 vanilla beans per 8 ounces of 70 proof alcohol.Any type of alcohol can be used, but bottom shelf vodka is most common because it will not add any additional flavors to the extract. Bourbon, rum and brandy can also be used. After 8 short weeks the extract is ready to enjoy.
